This is my first online forum post so apologies but I want to be an Investment Banker. I want to work with colleagues to drive sales and work with clients in a challenging environment. I want to work at Goldman and Sachs, or.
My questions are:
1) How will I win clients such that banks such as Goldman and Sachs or Morgan Stanley will actively recruit ME rather than me actively recruiting THEM.
2) How do I improve my networking hit-rate. So far, since I'm from NYC, I have worn a suit and taken the train down to Wall Street. At Wall Street, I will either walk around the Raging Bull statue in Bowling Green to look for Investment Bankers, or I will go to fast casual restaurants to look for them. I do this because I am clever and know Investment Bankers are busy such that they only have time to go to fast restaurants, but not fast food since they are healthier. So I have been going to Chipotle and Sweetgreen and such. So far I have found and spoken to 3 investment bankers in such manners which is surprisingly low for Wall Street. Most of the well dressed people I approach work at insurance companies or the stockholder exchanges. The ones that I have spoken to have been kind but have not offered me a job or invited me into the office to meet the Investment Banker Team.
